Three Strikes with Sam Geaney, the Padres Director of Player Development:
1) Youve done this for a while -- and been around the Cal League for a long time -- has there ever been a more prospect heavy rotation in your memory?
2) You had to be pleased with what Michael Gettys did last year. What did you see him this spring?
3) How has Javier Guerra looked, and do you think we will see a rebound from last year?
